    I love these guys. Went to see them in Hamilton this month….fantastic band. Three Junos; well deserved!

    Totally agree, Anon!! I’ve loved Nickelback since day 1. For me, there are VERY few bands that I like almost every song they’ve recorded…VERY few, which is why I don’t usually purchase cd’s, instead I just download the one or two songs per band that I like but, Nickelback is right up there with AC/DC and Metallica for me. These 3 bands for me, are the exact opposite of other bands…there are only one or two songs per album that I DON’T like, and for a band to be able to pull that off album after album…they deserve every award they’ve received!

    This question has nothing to do with the topic at hand but what the hell are tweets???

    Tweets are goodies that are full of sugar…hahahahahahaha! Nah, I believe “tweets” are the write ups that are on the TWITTER site (Twitter is kinda similar to Facebook).

    sorry guys, never been a fan, think all their songs sound the same…but am happy for their achievement, congrats to them…

    do like city and colour, simple plan, hedley and sam roberts though…took my daughter to see hedley a few years back with Panic at the Disco, All American Rejects…quite good.

    How dare you???? Your not a fan?? What do you know about music anyway??

    Just kidding…all their songs do sound somewhat the same, but I still love them anyway!!! Listen to them on the way to work everyday….

    Then I listen to a cd that has sounds of native american flutes, waterfalls, oceans, wind and whatever other sounds that are supposed to de-stress you and make you think your life (and job) are wonderful and feel like your at a spa….then I go home and call 911 because of abdominal and chest pains! lol

    Okay now you’ve seriously pissed me off 🙂 (smiley in the middle of a sentence, not the end; you can trust me baby!)!!!

    Allow me to correct you….one funny gal.

    Actually, you mustn’t be trusted…your smiley is at the end of your sentence because what is in brackets doesn’t count. LMFAO (Laugh my funny @$$ off).
